Don't get nervous and worry yourself to death dreading the effort required

This list doesn't contain pitcher drinks or big batch cocktails but still if cleverly planned, can be pre-mixed a little ahead of the party and then the final shake and pour ceremony can be done right during the party or slightly ahead of the arrival of the guests and kept in a refrigerator. But note that although none of these five fabulous cocktails are big batch recipes, but we shall try to find ways to make mixing easy and plan it such that you are ready in time.

Joy Ride


This bitter sweet delicious Vodka cocktail has the perfect blend of bitter and herbs of Campari with the citrus flavour of Absolut Citron, with the Sweet and Sour Mix and the Sugar and Lemon and Soda Water adds the deliciousness to the drink. The red of Campari blended with the pale yellow of the sweet and sour mix and the lemon gives it a very yummy colour that is yellowish-green with hints of orange and will be a party hit instantly.

Mixing this drink is easy, start with the total number of this cocktail you plan to serve, proportion ingredients as per the recipe multiplied by the total number of drinks and begin.

Step 1: Take the total sugar and lemon and muddle them lightly without extracting too much of essential oils from the lemon peels and keep the blend aside in the refrigerator.

Step II: Mix the total required Absolut Citron, Campari and Sweet and Sour Mix in store it too.

Step III: Now when guests are supposed to start arriving, mix the ice, and the blends and shake and pour in hurricane glasses and again store in refrigerator on multiple cocktail trays.

Step IV: When the guests are arriving take the trays out spritz the glasses with soda water and put on the table.






Amalfi Dream


inspired by the dream Mediterranean vacation destination on the Southwest Coast of Italy, which is famed for its production of Limoncello Liqueur, Amalfi Dream is another easy to mix cocktail that tastes like a summer vacation and can lift the spirit of any party.
Step 1: Amalfi Dream is so easy to mix that you can do it almost in one step, but better split it, again measure the exact total amount of Vodka required, the total fresh lemon juice required and of course the total Limoncello you need, mix all three and keep stored in a jar with a lid in the refrigerator moments ahead of the party, don't let it get too cold.

Step II: Keep the cocktail glasses in the refrigerator to chill.

Step III: Pour in cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 5 fresh mint leaves and shake for 10 seconds and pour in the chilled glass and repeat to fill all intended glasses and again store in refrigerator on a cocktail tray, and put on the table right when the party begins.

White Russian


This is one cocktail that requires some homework, there are simpler versions of the White Russian, but if you can manage the extra work this recipe asks for, guests will kiss your hand and thank you.

The extra work requires coating Pina Colada glasses with chocolate and blending several ingredients to get the special texture and flavour this cocktail offers.

Step I: Easy way to coat so many pina colada glasses with chocolate might seem hectic, but if the glasses are chilled in a freezer for a minute and then chocolate syrup is slowly poured along the inner surface of the glass while slowly turning the glass, the chocolate will quickly harden and form an interesting pattern on the glass. Note that the coting doesn't have to be even or cover the glass completely. Store the coated glasses in the refrigerator.

Step II: Blend Amaretto, Frangelico, Crème de Cacao and Vanilla Ice Cream to the consistency of a milk shake and keep in refrigerator.

Step III: Just ahead of the party, pour the blend in the pina colada glasses and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings and serve. This is quite a heady mix so be ready to see off a few tipsy guests.






Frozen Sunset


This is one simple cocktail that is classic in it's recipe and yet is simple to mix and serve.

The only pre party work required is rimming the whisky glasses with lemon juice and then with caster sugar, that creates that sweet and sour spark.

Step I: Dip Whisky glasses in lemon juice, and then dip it in caster sugar and let it dry.
Step II: Mix the total required Gin and Angostura Bitters and the Lemon juice and keep it cool. Keep the jar or jug with the lid on.
Step III: Just ahead of the party shake the mix with ice and strain into the glasses and serve.

Espresso Martini


This is yet another delicious cocktail that is perfect for the American coffee love. Easy to make and all that it requires is a good shake.

The only hard work here is that it can't be made in a batch and poured into glasses one after the other, since the froth that is needed on top might not pass on to every glass that way. But one can always give it a try beforehand and see how that works.

Step I: Pour into a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously to have that froth and strain into a Martini Glass or any glass of your choice.

Step II: Garnish with three whole coffee beans for that Italian traditional way of drinking Sambuca, where each bean represents health, happiness and prosperity.

  • Pina Colada Glass

    A Pina Colada Glass or Poco Grande Glass is a big flute bowled highball glass that is similar to the hurricane glass but is shallower than it and has a longer stem.
    Each Poco Grande Glass holds about 12 fluid oz of liquid, much less than the 20 fl oz a Hurricane Glass can hold. These are exotic glasses and like Hurricane glasses, are typically used in classic theme parties or tropical parties of unrestrained fun.

  • Hurricane glass

    A Hurricane glass is a glass tumbler which contains 20 US Fluid ounces (590 ml). It is a cocktail glass, and is named after the cocktail Hurricane created at Pat O'Brien's Bar in New Orleans. It is shaped like a vase or a hurricane lamp and wider than a highball glass.

    For a good explanation on which glass to use for which drink. Read this post from Bottleneck Management.

  • Martini Glass

    A Cocktail Glass is a stemmed glass with an inverted cone bowl used to serve straight up cocktails. Altough the term Cocktail Glass is used interchangeably with Martini Glass, they differ slightly. a Martini Glass is purely conical while a Cocktail Glass is more rounded in shape and the Martini Glass is wider at the mouth and has a taller stem.

    The martini glass has somewhat fallen out of favour in modern times due to its tendency to spill drinks, and the champagne coupe is sometimes used instead.

  • Simple Guide to Cocktail Glassware

    When there is no specific glass suggested for a cocktail, it's up to you to chose a glass.
    Either you just go ahead and serve using any glass available to you following these simple rules
    A. Go for Tall or Collins Glasses, Highball Glasses or even Hurricane Glasses for cocktails with loads of non-alcoholic mixes, and those that require crushed or cubed ices,
    B. But if your cocktail is aromatic and liqueur based, and has a complex character that must reach the nose use a wide mouthed Cocktail Glass.
    C. Red Wine Glasses for cocktails that have a Red Wine as the base spirit. Red Wine Glasses have a wider mouth and a long stem, so that the wine can be swirled an aerated to release the aroma while the long stem keeps the fingers away and avoid quick warming of the wine.
    D. White Wine Glasses for cocktails with a White Wine base, since White Wines must not be aerated as much as a Red Wines, since they oxidise fast when in contact with air, White Wine glassware, in contrast to the wide mouthed bowl of a Red Wine Glassware, is narrow with a narrow mouth. A White Wine has much lighter and delicate notes and the narrow mouth and less surface area in contact with air helps retain the aroma.
    E. If your cocktail is based on a Sparkling Wine like Champagne then a Flute Glass is more suitable since a Sparkling Wine is a White Wine with a secondary fermentation that produces the bubbles, and the narrow mouth flute prevents the bubbles from escaping.
    F. If it's winter and you are in the mood for some hot cocktails like the Irish Coffee or Hot Toddy, go for the Irish Coffee Glass, it has a heat resistant glass and a handle.
    G. Martini Glasses for Martinis or "Tinis" in general, but since these glasses have fallen off of favour these days, a Cocktail Glass will be good too.
    H. IF you are serving Margaritas, don't look for Margarita Glass if you don't have one at home, Double Old Fashioned Glass or other glasses are more common these days, for serving Margaritas.
    I. If you are the adventurous one, and are serving shots or shooters, of course the Shot Glass is your choice of glass,
    J. Finally, if you are going all out and serving depth charges and car bomb shots, all you need is a Double Old Fashioned Glass or a Beer Mug for the beer and a shot glass to drop the bomb in.
